At both Kroner Animal Care and The Plains Veterinary Hospital, our team of experienced veterinarians and knowledgeable staff strive to make sure every pet is welcome and receives the treatment they need to stay happy and healthy.

Every pet is unique, which is why we provide personalized care and exceptional attention to every dog, cat, and small pet that visits us.

We believe proactive care can help to build a foundation for lifelong health for your pet, and the first step of proactive care is regular preventive care. Our preventive care services include routine check-ups, vaccinations, and laboratory tests.

Because routine preventive care allows your veterinarian to understand the history of your pet's health, it can be easier to catch issues sooner. Then, if your pet is ever diagnosed with a chronic condition, our expert team can help with specialized treatment plans and even pain management to help your furry loved one feel better.
